New York law generally places a duty upon property owners to keep their lots and buildings in good condition and free of hazards. Even in instances when hazardous conditions are necessary — such as during construction or renovations — property owners must take steps to warn people of the danger and help prevent them from becoming injured. When they fail to meet this obligation, innocent people can suffer serious personal injuries and even wrongful death.
At Eisenberg & Baum, LLP, we help people seriously injured in premises liability accidents. Whether you suffered a sidewalk fall, harm caused by negligent security or a slip-and-fall accident, we can help you recover compensation for the resulting injuries. We understand the negative impact of a premises accident and want to help you get the resources necessary to heal and move on with your life.
Wide Range of Premises Liability Accidents
We handle a wide range of premises liability accidents. The concept of premises liability encompasses many accident types. Just a handful of the property conditions or injuries arising to personal injury claims include:
- Sidewalk Falls
- Slip-and-Falls from Slick Floors
- Slip-and-Falls from Ice or Snow
- Bath Tub and Shower Falls
- Dog Bites
- Fires Caused by Space Heaters
- Inadequate Lighting
- Inadequate Security
In a premises liability case, the law takes a number of factors into consideration: Did the property owner know about the hazard? Did they take actions to eliminate it? Should the accident victim have been able to avoid the accident?
Our attorneys are well versed in New York premises liability statutes and have a proven record of success obtaining results for injury victims. We are dedicated to helping our clients obtain full and fair compensation for the losses they have suffered.
